VANCOUVER, Oct. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – Yukon-Nevada Gold Corp. (TSX: YNG) (OTCBB: YNGFF) (Frankfurt Xetra
Exchange: NG6) Shaun Heinrichs, Co-CEO and CFO and Randy Reichert, Co-CEO and COO of
Yukon-Nevada Gold Corp. (the “Company”) are pleased to announce that
shareholders overwhelmingly approved all resolutions brought before
them at the Company’s Special Meeting of the Shareholders held in
Vancouver, British Columbia on October 2, 2012.
Share Consolidation and Name Change
All of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company will be
consolidated on the basis of ten (10) old common shares for one (1) new
common share. The Company’s name will be changed to Veris Gold Corp.
The TSX will issue a notice disclosing the first trading day on which
the shares of the Company will trade on a consolidated basis. The
shares of the Company will begin trading under the symbol “VG” on the
TSX and, upon acceptance of the Company’s application to the NYSE MKT,
“VGC” in the United States.
Shaun Heinrichs, Co-CEO commented, “The success of this vote allows us
to continue executing on our commitment to shareholders to increase the
value and profile of the Company in the market and begin attracting a
new group of shareholders that would have previously been unable to
invest in our Company. This will also support our application to the
NYSE MKT exchange which will increase our visibility in the US, where
the Company has seen significant interest from investors looking for
quality investments based in North America over the last several years.
A consolidated share price is also likely to increase investor
participation in Canada for our TSX listing.”
